In the kitchen, we’re making rosemary roast potatoes with a zesty horseradish sauce and viewers are in for a treat as singer Jesse Clegg takes the stage.

In the kitchen, we make cheat pastel de nata with berries and we bring back Culinary Hotline with Chef Clem Pedro!

We make some delicious bacon and cheese bombs and Chef Clem and Jamie go Christmas Shopping live from Canal Walk. We also chat to Tanya Visser as she shares all her gardening tips and tricks to keep you inspired this holiday season.
